The Orpheus Foundation

The Orpheus Foundation is an organisation that supports talented  young musicians in that crucial phase between conservatoires and the profession.

In a time when securing a place in an orchestra is getting ever more difficult, the work that Orpheus does is increasingly important in providing opportunities for young musicians to play in public, meet and work with established members of the profession and develop an all-round knowledge of the orchestral repertoire. We are thrilled that, since Orpheus was established in 2009, many musicians have gone on to win auditions and trials in various orchestras around the UK.


Most Orpheus Sinfonia concerts take place in St George's, Hanover Square, London W1, the church where Handel used to worship. The intimate atmosphere and social element surrounding our performances there give our concerts a special appeal. We encourage our audiences to enjoy drinks from the bar and to circulate before concerts and during the interval.

We look forward to welcoming you there!
